Apple-Nokia Feud Escalates
The patent spat between Apple and Nokia took another turn yesterday when Apple filed a petition with the International Trade Commission seeking to ban Nokia from importing its devices into the U.S. Nokia filed a similar petition in hopes to block Apple from importing its devices into the European Union. Both companies allege that the other is violating a number of patents regarding cell phone technology. When reached for comment, Nokia spokesperson Mark Durrant told Bloomberg, "Nokia will study the complaint when it is received and continue to defend itself vigorously. However this does not alter the fact that Apple has failed to agree appropriate terms for using Nokia technology and has been seeking a free ride on Nokia’s innovation since it shipped the first iPhone in 2007."

This is all such bull****!
Nokia may as well give up and die....
Name ONE successful initiative of Nokia's. Ovi? NGage? "Comes With Music?" They've all been miserable failures and beyond stupid in their conceptualization. Let's not even discuss Nokia's genius GPS implementation....
Name ONE successful platform of Nokia's. S60? Maybe 4 years ago. S80? Long dead. Maemo? Oh yeah, Maemo, it's been 3 years and it's still garbage. Even Android makes Maemo look like trash.
I have good memories of my earlier Nokia handsets, but this company has long lost its way.
What is Nokia other than a patent troll and maker of cheap disposable handsets? When is the last time anyone gave a crap about a Nokia handset that wasn't prepaid? The N95? Maybe two people cared about that glitch
Nokia out of the US market within 15 months?
One might say this is decent payback for the suit by Nokia against Apple for alleged infringements, but I think this is just plain dumb. Nokia has been making smartphones for the US market since 2002, and Apple's iPhone just arrived in 2007. It is clear to me that Nokia was already here long before Apple entered the smartphone market, and given this established record for Nokia smartphones and Symbian S60/S80 in the US, and the royalties already paid to Nokia, I feel that Apple doesn't really have a leg to stand on.
Now with reguards to what you said about Nokia making smartphones for the U.S. since 2002, I think it's sad that recently ATT has refused to carry the BEST...
Good luck with that Apple
What are you going to do, hurt their booming U.S. Smartphone business? 🤣
Yeah, because if they both get their wish, Apple would be hosed way more then Nokia. But, I'd friggin cut out Stevie bo...
Think Nokia will turn to guerrilla warfare?
